Following the success of last year’s inaugural festival, The Lowestoft Jazz Weekend returns for 2019, extended to four days, from 12 Sep – 15 Sep 2019.
Headline band will be Soft Machine (13 Sep), fresh from their recent 50th anniversary world tour. There will be a great opportunity to see legendary singer, Elaine Delmar performing with the Barry Green Quartet, featuring guitar ace, Jim Mullen (14 Sep).
The festival will kick off with the Chris Ingham Quartet, including star bassist, Geoff Gascoyne, playing ‘The Jazz of Dudley Moore (12 Sep). It will close with a blast from The Eddie Seales Big Band.
Local favourites, Jazz Unlimited, Gill Alexander Quartet and Pangaea return to complete the line-up.
The theme this year is variety. This line up has something for everyone. Lowestoft is a great place to spend a weekend and special accommodation deals are available from the Hotel Hatfield, one of the festival sponsors.’
